Looking forward to seeing you in the Ace shirt
The Ace shirt sounds like its good, I had a metal pro viking that I used once and preferred my rage-x.
hopefully the ace's last, ive found that for the money the rage-x is a good deal because they last.
Marcus, your right...im a whore..a good shirt comes along, with a couple more pounds in her and I flip like an overdone pancake
I would tell ya'll that I cut a hole in the belly of my shirt, but I dont wanna tell you what I use it for.....you all will think less of me lol
Thanks mods for being ontop of things.....
Back on topic: I love my Rage X--single ply. Am I reading things right that the new APT shirt is as good or better than the Rage X in terms of ease of fit and how much you are getting out of it?
My wife on the other hand is in a limbo with her shirt. She has major problems with the Rage X cutting the back of her arms and at times struggling to touch. I've heard the APT shirt doesn't cut the rear of the arm as much, but instead is rough on the anterior delts for those that have problems with it cutting the skin at all. Do those of you who've used it see this?
So which is a better shirt for a Heavyweight that arches?
I use the RageX and love it, but im not opposed to getting a different shirt, mines 2 years old and a guy said that I have runs in my shirt across the chest, so it may be time for a new shirt. Any help is appreciated.
Really depends on your form and how you bench. Simply being a heavyweight isn't going to say a whole lot
If you have runs in the chest plate thats why your bench is going down
The SK is a great shirt, just a ton of stopping power so it depends on how good of a shirted bencher you are.
Well, im not doing less weight, im just not getting what I used to get out of the shirt, im a lot stronger raw now. and im not getting the same caryover. I mean im 1 boarding 525. But I cant competition bench 480, im getting little to no pop from the bottom. And the reason I like the idea of a Super Katana is because I arch, pretty well for a big guy.
arch is only one factor to consider. With the SK you need to tuck hard. If you can't tuck very hard, you're going to have a super hard time touching.
The nice thing about getting a new rage is you won't have to re- learn the shirt when you get a new one in
However if you are just looking for something different though, I think the SK would be a great choice
May be in over my head as far as technicality of a bench shirt goes. Not sure the tuck thing, is that when you tuck your elbows? At anyrate, i'll more than likely go the way of the RageX bc like you said, I wont have to re learn it.
Im using the ace shirt rite now and get a **** load out of it......my last meet like 3 weeks ago I hit 625....my last heavy bench day before the meet i benched 375 raw which is a pr...the shirts are really good.....i only weighed 263 at the meet...so i think you can get alot out of this shirt....j frey is geting a lil over 300 out of the shirt
the Ace is not single ply
I guess they have a single ply version.
I thought the Ace was a single ply...from what I have heard about it, its just a very, very thick single ply. Almost the same thickness as a double rage x...
oh, nice correction! I didnt catch that, is the Apex a good shirt?
